And for those that don't already know, here's my build log AQUITY


That looks so much like every other SMA8 . . . . . .

Why not try something different . . .

Borrow from Mad Hatter with the GPU tubes going back into 90's part, and . . .

Also borrow from Gabz with GPU tubes going directly forward, and then down and then back to 90's like mad hatter.

The mobo tubing could also go forward and down, probably right into pass thrus.

You'd have a nice little wall of tubes visually dividing the mobo half of the case from the forward res half.

At least it would be one of a kind, and something different from all the rest.

its difficult to make something in this case. I haven't seen anyone do the top radiator like this, and it's how I have it in my 750d, instead I have one end connecting right to the GPU. I like how the port on the top rad goes straight down into the midplate, because I haven't seen anyone do that before.

The case is huge, it's not difficult to make something, just a bit trickier to make something special.

If you're going to have a rad in that lower compartment, especially a 140 fan sized one, you'll have to have the pass thrus back close to the vertical divider wall so they don't end up over the rad where you can't get to them, or they don't even fit.

I just don't see wisdom in blocking in your GPUs, so that you have to drain and dismantle everything to get to one of them.

Well I already went out and bought a 560GTS which is only 30mm thick because I wanted to do the GPU tubes right down. I'm going to keep on looking up things and designs, so hopefully I come up with something unique.

Just keep looking at what's been done, and keep an open mind . . .

Once you have your own parts in hand, and the case physically in front of you, It can be amazing just how different things really can look from what you saw in your mind's eye while trying to visualize and plan it.

Mine is unique, probably one of the few that did not use rigid tubing in the SMA8. tongue.gif

this is so so true, you can visualize it all you want even get measurements but it never turns out how you have it planned in your head. rolleyes.gif wont say how I know this wink.gif

What do you think about this. Ill have a lot more room between the res/pump and mobo, so these pics aren't "accurate". The two tubes on the CPU are not in parallel, as I will go behind the mobo tray and connect it to the right one. I also forgot to do the front rad lol. You get the basic idea though, right?



EDIT* also, the tubes from the CPU will be in a line together front and back. It was hard to show that in the picture. So one in front of each other, from the mobo tray, to the windows... If that makes sense?

So what's the current turnaround time for a case labs case? The website says 5-6 weeks which is ridiculous, have you guys waited that long?

I ordered my SMA8 exactly 5 weeks ago. I still have 1-3 weeks left. It'll go by faster if you don't think about it. It feels like I ordered mine yesterday.
